For details about this contest visit here. But basically, all you have to do is answer this week's question in the comments and on Friday, I'll choose one of the names and announce the winner.
Okay, so my question today is:
What is your favorite Sunday/leisure dinner?
I grew up in a traditional household where we ate dinner every night as a family at 6:00 sharp. On Sundays, we'd have roast, potatoes and several sidedishes. During the summer, most of the sidedishes were from the garden, complete with a few grains of dirt in the lettuce.
This past Sunday, I cooked a roast, made mashed potatoes and rolls (my kids would say THEY made them), and we had corn on the cob, carrots, and I actually made a dessert (shocking). It was great. It took hours and hours, and tons of dishes and pans, and basically the preparation and clean-up consumed the whole day (put the roast in the crock pot at 8:00 a.m. and had the kitchen finally clean about 5:00 p.m.). The eating part? Maybe 20 minutes. But crazy as it sounds, I'll probably do it next Sunday and the one after that . . .
